>OLYMPIA, Wash. — The state Parks and Recreation Commission may close 14 of the 121 state parks in Washington to save money.

A commission spokeswoman told The Olympian it’s looking at transferring low-priority parks to local governments or nonprofit groups. One of them is the 105-acre Tolmie State Park near Lacey, which doesn’t have a campground and draws mostly local visitors.

The list was compiled after several parks were closed in 2002. The commission rated all state parks for their location, scenic views, cultural resources and potential to make money.

The spokeswoman, Virginia Painter, says there are no plans to sell parks to developers or commercial interests.

The plan will be subject to debate in the Legislature.
